THIS IS THE PERFECT SAFARI HOLIDAY FOR YOU!

On this 5 day safari, you will visit Lake Manyara National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti National Park via Ndutu. At this time of year, Lake Manyara National Park is a better option over Tarangire National Park as the lake will be covered with flocks of awe-inspiring pink flamingos. After Manyara, you will go through the highlands of Karatu, cross the Ngorongoro Conservation Area via Ndutu for the migration and calving season. Most wildebeests give birth in this volcanic soil because of the high nutritional content in the vegetation of this area. A large number of predators can also be seen hunting here. You will go to Serengeti and later to the Ngorongoro crater. During your whole journey, you will be rewarded with sites of beautiful landscapes and incredible views of different types of vegetation.
